It is also possible that this kinescope was for stations that didn't have colour broadcasting ability (some NBC stations were still only in B&W). Keep in mind that colour kinescopes are very rare, and no colour video-tapes exist from 1957.

B&W kinescope perhaps for Armed Forces TV.

Very funny! Steves shows were always well done, and lots of good laughs even 57 years later!

Matt, that was fun especially the quiz show, To Tell a Lie. It is sad as well. Errol Flynn's last film was about Diana Barrymore. He died two months later.
